2. Cafes in Daegu Industrial Tools Alley
When coming out from the museum and walking toward the industrial tools alley in Bukseongro for 5 minutes, you'll meet altered Hanok(Korean traditional house) cafes. The cafes here are very unique showing own character melted with the history and art soul of Daegu.

The building is an altered Japanese-style house which has remained from Japanese Colonial Ruling Era, so the cafe still has a dadami room. You may feel an artistic atmosphere with the scent of coffee all over the cafe.



Jan-ger Salon
Bukseongro Jangger Salon
The cafe is a place for mixed-culture of bicycles, Art and coffee, and it's also an altered old building like Samduk Sanghwai. The owner of this building works as a social enterpriser while artists and magazine editors use the cafe as their workroom. You can get a discount for coffee if you ride your bicycle to come.



Mixcafe Bookseongro

Though the place used to be a warehouse once, the whole building is changed to a modern cafe now. The third floor is open as a gallery so that you can appreciate art works over a cup of coffee.



3. Bukseongro Udon & Bulgogi

Bukseongro Bulgogi & Udon 2
Bukseongro Udon & Bulgogi is a popular menu in Daegu, but the dish is not easy to meet in other cities. Udon and Bulgogi are ironically well-matched, especially in cold winter days. When dusk falls, the cart bars in Bukseongro open by ones and twos. Then it's ready to have a bowl of hot Udon and Bulgogi that the smell of coal-heating permeates the air. Don’t miss this wonderful dish at Bukseongro!
